  Dolphins | Miami to get trio back on field for OTAs    Sat May 19, 10:05 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee), LB Raekwon McMillan (knee) and CB Tony Lippett (Achilles') are all expected to be on the field in some capacity next week, although it is still uncertain how much work all three will actually do, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

Footballguys view: Tannehill is the one fantasy owners (and the Dolphins) will be monitoring closely during camp. He missed all of last year with this knee injury, prompting the Dolphins to go out and sign Jay Cutler. Now, Tannehill is back for one more (and final?) season as the starter. With Brock Osweiler, Bryce Petty and David Fales behind him the Dolphins don't have many choices other than to see if Tannehill can not only regain his form but show that he's got more potential than he's shown as a pro.

  Eagles | No timetable for Jordan Hicks    Thu May 17, 05:01 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles LB Jordan Hicks (Achilles') does not have a timetable for his return even though he said he is ahead of schedule.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Texas in 2015, Hicks has only played a full 16-game season once in his career. Last season, the Achilles' injury limited him to just seven games. Things seem to be on track in his recovery, and having Hicks out there would be a boost for the Eagles defense.

  Raiders | Derrick Johnson terms    Thu May 10, 10:42 AM

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders LB Derrick Johnson's one-year, $1.5 million deal includes a $200,000 signing bonus and $500,000 guaranteed. The deal is worth a maximum of $2.25 million.

Footballguys view: It's a safe deal for both sides. If Johnson still has 'it' the Raiders get a pretty reasonably priced linebacker and if he doesn't, it wasn't a costly error.

  Raiders | Derrick Johnson headed to Oakland    Fri May 4, 12:59 PM

Free-agent LB Derrick Johnson (Chiefs) agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, May 4.

Footballguys view: The long-time Chiefs linebacker stays within the division with this move. Johnson may not be the same player he used to be, but at 35-years old last year he showed the ability to continue to make plays against the run.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier (back) converted $8.26 million of his $8.718 million base salary into a signing bonus Thursday, May 3, which means he'll receive the money immediately. Shazier was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: It helps the team, and it gives Shazier his money even if he never plays again. Class move from both ends.

  Steelers | Ryan Shazier goes to PUP list    Wed May 2, 02:41 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier (back) was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, May 2.

Footballguys view: He's not going to play this year, and we've known that for some time...the Steelers are just making it official here. It was inspirational to see Shazier walking on stage at the 2018 NFL draft, and we hope he can continue on the right path back to full strength.

  Lions | Detroit high on Jarrad Davis    Fri Apr 13, 09:27 PM

Detroit Lions LB Jarrad Davis is a perfect fit for head coach Matt Patricia's defensive scheme, general manager Bob Quinn said. 'Jarrad can play in any scheme, but I think it's going to be really, his skill set is going to be exemplified in what we're doing now.'

Footballguys view: A 2017 first-round pick, Davis is versatile and violent on the field. Davis can roam and has the athleticism to play sideline to sideline. When playing the run, Davis does a good job of getting to and through a ball carrier. In 14 games as a rookie, Davis had 65 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, one interception and three passes defensed.

  Jets | Contract details for two Jets    Thu Apr 12, 04:22 PM

New York Jets LB Kevin Minter and OG Dakota Dozier each signed one-year deals with the Jets worth $880,000.

  Colts | Indy signs Najee Goode    Wed Apr 4, 07:20 PM

Free-agent LB Najee Goode (Eagles) signed with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, April 4. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Colts lack stalwart starters at middle and weakside linebacker. Goode started a few games for the Eagles last year and could win a starting job this year, which would make him an IDP sleeper.
